THINKS THEBE WAS BAD FAITH One Hundred Olerks to Stop Over Here ! on Way to Coast About 100 hotel clerks of the south and east will arrlvo In three cars from Chi men nr.il St. Louis today on their av to tho annual cdnventlon of the Grceters of America at Los Angeles, After being tho guests of local hotel clerks during the day some of the Omaha "front office" men will join tho party, which will proceed west by way of Den ver In a Bpecial train. A brcakfpst at tho Henahaw. luncheon at the Rome, an auto tour of greater Omaha and some amusement at the Ak-Sar-Bcn den aro Included In tho day's program.

President of Hoard of Education, Follovflnre Illclinrrinon'a llriliinn tlon, Sny Peruana! Krlrnita Favored by Dr. Font ex. Rumors that President C. T. Walker of the Board ot Education wan ready to re sign, owing to differences with the com mittee on teachers and Instructions, are emphatically denied by him. 'In view ot certain things having hap- cned and in view of certain proposals which 1 know are going to be made, 1 believe It Is my duty to remain on the board and fight such proposals," said President Walker. "Is that a declaration of war against the head ot the teachers' committee?" ho was asked. "It may mean that," he replied. President Walker did not discuss the resignation of James Richardson further than to say he would "stick by his guns" and oppose tho "proposals that needed his opposition." He was rather bitter toward Dr. J. J. Foster, head of the teachers' committee, who recommended a man for the second vice prlnclpalshlp of tho Centra! High school when Walker favored a woman in the position. "A few years ago I was told tlmt Miss Kate Mcltugh was tho only logical per son for superintendent of" schools." said President Walker, referring to Dr. Fos ter's, position, "but now I am told from Iho same Bource that a woman ought not to hold any responsible executive po sition In the public schools. "Thcra Is no consistency In such a course. I am now ready to fight othir proposals o fthls committee proposals t have reason to believe will be made not in the Interest of the general public, a such proposals should be made, but to favor personal friends. "It Is a misappropriation of power to use a public office to olevnte a personal friend to a position over other applicants, that Is what happened last night.''

Safety First Plan Records Show that it Saves Hundreds The efficiency ot the "safety first" organization of the Northwestern Is shown In a bulletin Just issued, which In dicates that the loss of life among em ployes of tho rallrd.ad has decreased .12 per cent, as compared with n similar period four years ago. The statistics have been tabulated to compare the re sults of the system for a forty-slx-months" period ending April 30. 1911, nnd a period of similar length ending In-1910, Besides the decrease of 32 per cent In the number of deaths among employes, there have been 8,170 fewer employes hurt, 659 fewer passengers Injured and 245 fewer outsiders Injured or killed. The Increasing efficiency of the safety first organization of the Northwestern has resulted In diminishing the deaths and Injuries from 19 to 32 per cent since 1910.
